    Kelly's Quilt (Better than I hoped)

    This is my attempt to emulate Lady-T's quilt posted 07-09-2013.
    Mine is not as good as hers because the ric-rac made my fabric borders pucker. We live and learn I guess. I am a bit disappointed, but I am hoping the quilting will deal with it when the time comes. This little girl brightens my day each time I see her when going to school with my Grandson. She is cheeky, has freckles and Auburn hair. She reminds me of myself at age 8. I hope she will like it, it's a surprise for her.

    Any little girl would love this...especially a cheeky one with freckles and auburn hair! I think your concerns about puckers will disappear when it's been quilted and washed.

    I think the ric rac looks great and gives your quilt character. She is going to absolutely love it.
